Description of problem:
I have an nVidia GeForce MX 4000 (PCI) video card.
Anaconda detects the video card as a Trident Microsystems Cyberblade i/1. This
is incorrect. It is possible that it is somehow finding the onboard card, which
is not disableable in BIOS.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a nVidia GeForce MX 4000 video card into your PC.

After the install, can you run 'kudzu -p -c VIDEO' and provide the output?
[root@localhost ~]# kudzu -p -c VIDEO

I have just installed FC6 test3 on a spare partition, alongside FC5.
Installation went smoothly but on rebooting I just got a notice on the monitor
"Unsupported video mode". I mounted the FC6 partition in FC5 and looked at the
xorg.conf file, which seemed not to have anything related to my monitor, so I
copied the equivalent file from the FC5 installation. Now FC6 works as expected.
I have a Geritec 568 lcd monitor and NVidia G-Force FX 5900XT video card. At
present I'm using the nv driver. FC5 installation went correctly and detected both.
